Disney PROM, New Movie Franchise?

Disney is developing ‘Prom,’ a comedy that revolves around a group of teens prepping for the dance, according Variety. They are looking to cast complete and the tone is said to be similar to the types of teen comedies helmed by John Hughes or Cameron Crowe.

Joe Nussbaum, who has experience directing direct-to-DVD films, will helm the project, based on a script by Katie Wech, who was an associate producer on ‘Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience.’ ‘Prom’ is not expected to be a musical and has the potential to launch a new franchise, like High School Musical.

Early plans had ‘Prom’ being produced for around $5 to $10 million, but Disney is keeping its budget and casting options for the nine lead roles open until it reads the final script. A fourth ‘High School Musical’ is in the works at Disney Channel. If they go forward, do YOU it will succeed?

    That girl in HSM4 is british. i doubt being from England matters…

    And actually alot of dcoms are filmed in Utah. I’m a dancer and have a bunch of friends that danced in the HSM movies and all the dance auditions/extras casting was in utah.

    Well it is harder if you live in England to get auditions and go to casting calls as there is a freakin massive pond right in the way!

    Sounds like it should be a Fox show, not a Disney show. I love watching Disney Channel, but the sound of 9 assumingly blonde brained girls planning a party doesn’t sound like it’s gonna go a long way…

    Although, what will this movie be about? Probably some bunch of girls getting ready for prom, and which guy to take.

    It might actually be one of disney’s more ‘true’ movies, however sad that sounds. No secret pop stars, no wizards, no girl becoming a superstar overnight, just people being teenagers.
    Sounds like disneys’ old shows, like Boy Meets World, or Even Stevens

  • Yo.

    WOW…If you don’t know Kingsley, Umm, youre Kinda wierd…

    Demi Lovato Can do so Much better than disney…She’s Freaking amazing. Love the Bitch. :D

    It has potential. Just as long as they don’t screw it up. Hopefully they take unknowns. Adding any of their current stars would probably screw it up.

    John Hughes movies make Disney look like SHIT! I’m shocked that they even had John Hughes and Disney in the same sentence. Hopefully this plot won’t be picked up by the critics.
